Does the government employ psychics to spy on other countries or people? Psychic spies have been around since the cold war. You may have heard of the campy movie called Men Who Stare at Goats (2004). It makes fun of psychics who are being trained by the military to stare at goats and kill them with their minds.
Think this psychic spy business is just bunk? I want to share with you what I learned from Russell Targ, the man who helped to set up the psychic remote viewing program for the CIA in the 1970’s. This program lasted for more than 20 years, cost around $25 million, and was a secret classified program at the time.
Just after the movie Men Who Stare at Goats came out, I had the fortunate opportunity to attend a seminar with Russell Targ. He talked about this movie and said that some of things in the movie really did happen – including the part where someone thinks they can walk through a wall and bangs into it!
He also said that the psychics in the real program (not the movie) were being trained to see the heart of a goat exploding. The problem wasn’t that they couldn’t achieve this. They could. They couldn’t target the goat they wanted to affect – the wrong goat would die.
Psychics have been consulted for centuries by people in power. People who rule countries, manage vast amounts of money, and command armies have used what psychics have told them to help them become more successful and win battles.
In the last few decades, it’s moved to a whole new level. Training people with psychic abilities to use their gifts and the power of their minds to affect others for a particular agenda or cause brings up many ethical questions.
Do we have the right to manipulate or psychically spy on other people, intellectual property, or other nation’s military strategy? Do we have the right in the name of “national security” to kill another or influence their minds and health through energetic means?
I’m sure what Russell Targ was telling us was just the tip of the ice-burg. Someone who has a high-level position in the military told a friend of mine that the U.S. public is privy to 5% of what really goes on.
What if we woke up the power of our minds and used it to help heal others, the planet, and solve conflict and problems to achieve peace?
The psychic spy program, according to Russell Targ, was shut down due to lack of funding. (Yeah, like I believe that one!) It’s not the gift that’s the problem. It’s how we use it.
